This workshop, sponsored by the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP), is open to students at the undergraduate level who are interested in cross-cultural psychology. The primary objective of this workshop is to increase knowledge and highlight the importance of cross-cultural psychology in undergraduate students of SAARC (South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation) nations. Through this workshop, we also aim to create a SAARC resource ecosystem – wherein networking with fellow researchers at various stages (senior researchers, regional researchers, and international researchers) would be possible.

Pallavi Ramanathan 

Pallavi Ramanathan is currently pursuing her PhD in psychology from IIT Delhi. Her interests lie in the areas of social identity, the social and cultural context, and refugees. Her doctoral work seeks to understand the construction and negotiation of Tibetan refugee identities, where she considers factors such as the social, historical, political, and geographical context to be of critical importance when exploring social identity. She is interested in the construction, negotiation, and contestation of identity (ies) at a group level, looking to understand the cross-section of identity and culture. Her Master’s dissertation (from the University of Delhi) addressed similar concerns in its efforts to understand acculturation and the nature of Tibetan refugee identity. In addition to this, she is also interested in intergroup relations and their influence on identity within various cultural contexts and has presented her work at many platforms.
